Rice Krispies!

Since we decided to drive to Cleveland this weekend, decided not to take any days off of work, decided to drive Friday night after working all day, we are doing nothing but relaxing at Mr P's parents' house!

A long time ago I promised Mr P's little cousin that we would make rice krispie treats the next time we came home, but since we are always on the go seeing those whom we don't see often, I always let her down, and we didn't make them.  This time, since we are just relaxing all weekend, I bought the stuff to make them waaay ahead of time, and we made them this afternoon!

Though I brought sprinkles with me, they had lots of little bits of leftover sprinkles from making cupcakes, so we used them ALL!  haha  Rice krispie treats are the easiest fun treat to make, with just marshmallows, butter, and rice krispies cereal.  That's it!  Except we this time added sprinkles and cake mix!!

Rice Krispies

3 tbsp butter
1 10oz bag of marshmallows
6 cups of rice krispies cereal
sprinkles and 1/4 cup of cake mix (dry) are both optional

Butter a cake pan prior to starting to make the treats.  Heat a large pan over low heat, add butter and allow to melt completely.  Add marshmallows and continue stirring until marshmallows are completely melted (do not turn up the heat, or the butter and/or marshmallows will burn, just be patient!!). Add the dry cake mix by the spoonful and stir until thoroughly mixed (if you choose to add cake mix).  Add the rice krispies cereal and continue stirring until completely mixed.  Pour into cake pan.  Butter hands and press mix into the bottom and sides of the pan so that it is an even thickness throughout.  Add sprinkles if desired :D

Enjoy!  We surely are enjoying them this lovely and coooold afternoon.
